File this under "equipment considerations.
My pickup truck, Crystal,* has seen better days, so I'm looking for a vehicle that could haul all our gear, handles reasonably well in the snow, and maybe carry three or four of us around.
I'm looking at either 1) A Ford Explorer XLT Sport Trac - seats four, with a windowless, theft-resistant bed cap for gear; or 2) a windowless white van with secured (or no) access between the cab and the cargo area.
* My pickup truck's name is Crystal. Because she's a filthy wh*r*.
